Special Needs

I work with people with special needs. It's in my life script I guess because I worked in Home Health Care years ago and I live with an elderly woman who uses a wheelchair. I am a strong believer in life experiences and how us humans need to grow into better people because of our experiences. I noticed that people with special needs who have brain damage don't get to have life experiences the way that we do. They only seem to live for happiness. That's if they are taken care of right. If anything they are tools for us to learn and grow from and that is a blessing. People with special needs will touch your heart like no one else can.I have learned from them that my life could be worse and I appreciate living just a little bit more and I treat them well because I would want to be treated the same way if I was in the same situation that they are in. They are precious and its sad that not all facilities treat them as good as the company that I work for does.

I LIVE WITH A FRIEND THAT DRINKS TOO MUCH BEER , AND SLEEPS ALOT BUT I CAN NOT GET HIM TO WEAR DIAPERS LIKE I DO , I KNOW I HAVE A WEAK BLADDER AND HE DOES TOO WHAT TO TELL HIM? HE WETS HIS BED ALOT

It is very sad to see how some people are treated. There should be more like you.

My clients are treated respectfully and they are loved and happy. It doesn't even feel like a job.

Heart warming!

Ya, I am thankful for the negative life experiences that I have had because it just conditioned me to have tolerance for people with special needs when they try to test me or when they get sick.
